Author: Alan Robertson


How can we find true happiness?

For over thirty years, Dr. Alan Robertson has counseled those exploring this simple question that is common to all of us. Dr. Robertson has identified a mystery: the more people pursue happiness, the more elusive happiness becomes. Linked to this is another profound discovery: if a person finds something meaningful in life, and begins to be passionate about it, happiness comes as a by-product.

Jesus recognizes the hunger of the human heart for happiness. In fact, he prescribed the solution! The answer lies in understanding and applying the eight beatitudes spoken by Jesus in his Sermon on the Mount, as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew. Each beatitude begins with the word blessed which means “very, very happy.” While most of us have heard of the eight beatitudes, few of us fully understand their value—let alone apply them to our lives.

As Dr. Robertson studied the beatitudes, they impacted his life so powerfully that he knew he must share this transformational truth with others.

True Happiness: Living the 8 Beatitudes contains the dynamic results of his study and teaching. Each chapter provides an in-depth exposition of one of the beatitudes, practical exercises, questions for further Bible study, and a suggested prayer. If you’re ready to try living the beatitudes yourself, this book will be a practical and life-changing study. You may be surprised to find . . . True Happiness.
